Grace O'Shea, LMSW
My name is Grace O’Shea, and I am a licensed psychotherapist based in New York City. I earned my Bachelor of Arts in Biology and Neuroscience from Augustana College and my Master’s in Social Work from New York University. I specialize in working with athletes and survivors of intimate partner violence and sexual assault, and my professional training also focused on contributing to research investigating treatments for post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD).
As an advocate for survivors of gender-based violence and a former collegiate athlete, I aim to partner with individuals who have experienced the effects of violence and athletes struggling with mental health challenges. I provide an empathic and non-judgmental space to work together to understand the root cause of your symptoms and address maladaptive coping patterns and relational difficulties.
I have received training in Internal Family Systems (IFS), and I implement a trauma-informed approach grounded in my neuroscience training. In addition to IFS, I incorporate elements of systems theory, psychodynamic, solution-focused, and cognitive behavioral therapy, depending on the most appropriate approach for our work together.
